Grief

I just feel so sad. Today is my last day babysitting. I may be able to do a date night here or there and I may or may not get that after school job. I am waiting to hear from disability and it has been 2 years and I am so sick of it. I have had so many jobs and lost so many. I am trying to transition into a friendship after a romantic relationship. I am trying to have peace in my home and within myself. I am worried about my dad's health with his prostate cancer. I am trying to make sure I celebrate the best I can with my son in spite of my life turnoil because his 13th birthday is coming up. I am trying to take care of myself, help with my son and his health, help with my friend/ex and her health. This is why I am in counseling and why my church and faith is so important to me. I truly need all the help I can get. How do others cope with life's trials, tribulations, challenges, struggles, and problems?

@melindataylor22 you need to eliminate some things. Even if you dont think you should/can.

@Courtlynn I can certainly try and figure out what that would be and how to do it.

I pray and cry a whole lot. And I vent and talk about things here which helps too. I hope things get easier for you soon. I will keep you in my prayers. =)

Jesus is the way, the truth, and the life:) He is the one we should all run to, through prayer! That is what I do, through every single trial and he always answers, in his own time!:)
